We truly loved our vacation at this beach house. The owners were nice and easy going and we got the feeling that they really cared about us having a great experience. The pool was big enough for the whole family to enjoy together. We definitely used the golf cart a lot more than we thought. The house was very clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable. We definitely recommend this house to anyone coming to Destin for vacation. My wife is already planning our return trip for next year.

Thank you for the great review Shelly. It was our honor and pleasure to have the opportunity to host you. We look forward to having you back again next year!
Great stay, great hosts.
We had a great stay over the Christmas-New Year’s week. There were a couple small things that came up that the hosts were very quick to address and they were great communicators. It really was a pleasure renting from someone who cares and is concerned with the guests’ comfort and are so responsive! It made our trip that much better. The house is in a great location and is a great value. It has nearly everything you need for a plug and play beach vacation. Highly recommend renting for the full week to get the golf cart as part of your fees.Rent it. You won’t be disappointed!!
